Delicate sauvignon

Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Marlborough, NZD $33

Unusually produced from non-irrigated vines. Delicately aromatic sauvignon blanc with mineral, citrus and subtle herbal flavours. Very textural wine thanks to a 10% barrel-fermented component. A wonderfully pure and subtly complex sauvignon. (Screwcap)
